Welcome, our values and our staff
Middleton Primary School is a happy school. We are proud of our lovely pupils, they work hard, behave well and enjoy all that school has to offer. Our ethos is one of calm, purposeful learning, within a harmonious and inclusive community.
We have high expectations for all our pupils and staff. We believe that all children should develop into independent, skilled and confident young citizens, ready to meet the challenges of modern day life and to strive to become the best that they can be.
Middleton continues to be a very successful and thriving school for the benefit of everyone in the community. We view parents as partners, recognising the vital role that they play. We want to work together as a team, to fully realise the potential of your child.
Middleton Primary School is part of a Multi-Academy Trust, the Peterborough Keys Academy Trust. PKAT is a group of five Peterborough schools, Middleton Primary School, Jack Hunt School, Longthorpe Primary School, Ravensthorpe Primary School and Thorpe Primary School. We work together to ensure pupil achievement, well being and strive to provide the best experience for our pupils. You can access the PKAT website https://pkat.co.uk/
You are most welcome to come and look around the school, to meet pupils and staff and see our success yourself. The school’s website also details a snapshot of what we do.
We look forward to meeting you and your child.
Mrs Alma McGonigle
